Short stories

In this collection, Ruskin Bond tells the stories of eccentric aunts and uncles, a kind stationmaster and a rather eccentric parrot with a speaking problem. These stories are imbued with Bond's signature style and love for the artform. He enchants children with his storytelling prowess and leaves them wanting for more. Whether he writes about his favourite hill stations or about life in calm towns in North India, Bond leaves kids with a lifelong love for the written form.
